Constipation is something all of us have experienced at some point of time. But this is not like a common-cold or a flu, which can be shared with friends and colleagues.
It is certainly not good news when you can't flush out your stomachs contents for a few days at end. A large part is because of our unhealthy eating habits. There are so many fast-foods in the market, and they are not very good for health. To cap it all, they are not very easy to digest.
But constipation is nothing to be embarrassed about too. The point is that it should be dealt with as soon as one realizes one has it.
To tackle the problem at the roots, you need a tablespoon of olive-oil coupled with a teaspoon of lemon-juice. Constipation is easily handled by getting the olive-oil down the throat before anything else.
Olive-oil works its miracles best only when it is taken on an empty stomach, so opt for it in the morning as soon as you get up, or let some time pass by before whatever you have eaten is digested.
You can choose to dilute the olive-oil with the lemon-juice. You are sure to add some amount of good flavor to it this way. You can add a bit of water to it to make the mixture good to taste.
The lemon-juice may not be very good to taste or it might be very sour, adding a bit of water to it makes it a lot palatable.
